Although I do read other people’s blogs occasionally, I never imagined starting one of my own. My first thought would be, “who, on earth would want to read what I have to say?” For my birthday, my son, Steve and his lovely girlfriend, Caroline set up this site for me to begin writing. I chose the title, “Generations” because in the last year after my father’s passing I have become deeply interested in so much of his research. I discovered downstairs in the basement of my parent’s home, a file that contained all the letters my Dad had received from me, as well as his grandchildren over the last fifty or so years. At my new school, Crockerfarm Elementary I can remember being placed in a special creative writing program in the third grade. I believe I was able to continue in that program until I started playing flute in the school band.
I intend to use this blog to open a glimpse into the past, share musical and familial experiences, and offer examples of my own secrets to raising four amazing children.
